While reading her tribute at the Burial ceremony of the late Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, she expressed that she was surprised at the warm wishes and show of affection that she and her family have received since June 29th.

Mrs. Amissah- Arthur queried: Is this Ghana? I am amazed by the outpouring of tributes for my husband. So, did they really know him? The treachery against my husband, the mischief, the false accusations, the maligning, deliberate things against my husband to make him look bad... So, I ask did they really know my husband?"
